— Education is a critical opportunity – Adam Kinzinger (DIERSEN: How has education helped you? If I had not earned a bachelor’s degree in business from NIU in 1970, a) Firestone Stores would not have hired me in 1970, b) Oldsmobile would not have offered me a job in 1971, and c) IRS would not have hired me in 1971. If I had not been taking graduate business courses at Loyola, IRS might not have promoted me in 1972, 1973, or 1974. If I had not earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976, if I had not passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, and if I had not been taking graduate accounting courses at DePaul, GAO would not have hired me in 1980. If I had not earned a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980, if I had not passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981, and if I had not become a likened CPA in 1981, GAO would not have promoted me in 1986. I had not started taking graduate finance courses at IIT in 1992 and earned a master’s degree in finance from IIT in 1997, my Democrat GAO superiors might have succeeded in forcing me to take their early retirement “offer” earlier than they did.)

GAO audits IRS. When I transferred from IRS to GAO in 1980 when I was 31 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates dismissed, belittled, badmouthed, demonized, denigrated, and condemned a) the work experience that I had gained by working for IRS for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 levels, currently $81,071-$91,880, b) what I had learned earning an MBA from Loyola in 1976, c) what I had learned taking graduate accounting courses at DePaul since 1976, and d) what I had learned to pass the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979.)

VAUGHN LAW FIRM
— Constraining the Political Beliefs of Federal Government Employees (DIERSEN: Did any of your employers punish you for your political beliefs? My Democrat GAO superiors forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, gave me unfair performance expectations and appraisals, always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, did not promote me beyond GS-13, got rid of my mentor in 1987, kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and forced me to take an $19,203 pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980. My Democrat IRS superiors did not promote me beyond GS-12, disallowed my education deductions in 1978, got rid of my mentor in 1975, and disallowed my partial day per diem claims in 1974. My Democrat Post Office superiors forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: If a federal government employee is fired and/or discriminated against because of their political beliefs, the action would arguably be in contradiction to the United States Constitution, particularly due to the fact that it would potentially violate free speech rights as well as the right to due process. Discrimination that is based on an employee’s political beliefs occurs when an employer makes job decisions regarding that employee because of their political beliefs, civic activities, or party affiliation. For instance, if an employer demotes anyone who refuses to vote for a certain political party or does not hire someone as a result of their stance on a particular issue, then that employer is likely engaged in political discrimination. While there are no specific laws that prohibit discrimination based on political views, federal government employees have constitutional protections that prohibit the abuse of government power. The First Amendment guarantees the right to free speech, and thus, it can protect an employee’s political views, but it is important to note that this protection is for government employees rather than those that work for private employers. Even if there is not a valid reason to raise a free speech argument, it is possible that political discrimination may be illegal on other grounds. For example, depending on the facts and circumstances of your case, the political discrimination might be considered illegal religious or race-based discrimination. An experienced and knowledgeable Federal Employment Law Attorney can review your case and determine whether you have a viable discrimination claim.)
